Update: *As of 1/2/14, you can now download all of my current Genius Hour resources in a bundle on Teachers Pay Teachers for $5. Or, you can still download them separately (for free) by clicking on the links below.
I suppose you can tell that I am on a Genius Hour kick this week. I am trying to take advantage of my time off to create some of the materials I wish I had last year. Last night, I worked on creating a flyer for Genius Hour using Smore. My initial intent was to stop there, but then I thought, “Wow, wouldn’t it be neat if I could print this out, and add an “Aura” to it so kids could scan it, and see the video?
So, three hours later, this is what I have. You can still view the flyer online here.
Or, you can download the PDF I made of the flyer below. Be sure to print it out in color. To make the Aura work, you will need to have the Aurasma app on a device. Make you sure you have added the Hidden Forest Elementary channel. Then, when you use the app to scan the image of “The Quest” the movie should start playing on your device.
If you are not familiar with using the Aurasma app, you might want to check out this post (be sure to read the “Update” as the app did change right after I published that post.)
I also have other posts on Aurasma, including how to make your own Auras. Just type in “Aurasma” in the search box on the right.
And, here are more resources on Genius Hour in case you are new to the blog.
